Yay for me! LOL...

    Anybody know if there are any secret missions to unlock after you've already beaten the game? I got a few cell-phone calls shortly after the “Keep Your Friends Close...” mission, but so far nothing's come of them...



What's borderline-cheating about that? If you're not using codes, you're playing within the rules of the mission as they were provided to you. If they wanted to set a strict go-too-far-away-and-you-fail-the-mission policy, they'd have programmed one in (or taken other measures, such as time limits, which many missions have).

As far as I know, there are no extra victory-lap missions -- the quest for 100% completion is long enough. (There are a few bonuses and awards for reaching the 100% mark.) I beat it without a guide or codes, but am positive that I'll be resorting to a guide or FAQ to get to 100%, as otherwise I'll never find all of the packages.

Right now I'm using a guide to find the packages. I also turn to it if I can't beat a mission after a few tries.

Well, when I say what I did was “borderline-cheating”, I meant I felt just a little bit dirty doing it. You know, taking advantage of the rules of the game. Oh, well... as long as it's not south-of-the-border cheating, it's all well and good.

I may eventually use a guide to get the secret packages. So far I believe I have 42.

Oh, and Riki... I won't spoil anything for you, but I must say that the Malibu missions are wicked.
